My Disney trip update...a card, new stash and pics!


Good Morning crafty friends! It is so nice to finally get some time to share my Disney trip pics with you! We had a great time and it was nice to have a break and see all my beloved Disney friends again! It truly is a magical place!!!!! This year the Theme is "Celebrate Everyday" and we went to Celebrate Hannah's 10th birthday and it was a great way to celebrate!!!!

Well, first I wanted to show you the card that I made for Hannah and I brought it to Florida with us and gave it to he on her birthday before we headed to the Magic Kingdom! I am quite happy with how this card turned out! I used a great sketch #58 from Friday Sketchers challenge blog. I didn't have time before we left to enter the challenge but it was a gorgeous sketch and one to use again for sure!
I used this yummy Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper that I bought at Stamping Bella...I thought the polka dot paper was kinda reminiscent of Minnie's polka dot dress. I used this new Summer Anya stamp and coloured her with my Copics. I used my Stix 2 glue and foil to give her mirrored sunglasses, lol! The sentiment is a Stamping Bella sentiment...how perfect is it and I embossed it with Zing White embossing powder. I used some Melissa Frances rub-ons on the image and I spotted this Mickey ears ribbon slider in my stash that my good friend Dana gave me a few years ago and it was just the perfect little touch for this card!

Here is the inside sentiment which is also a Melissa Frances rub-on! Hannah was pleased with her card but I think she just wanted to get going to Disney World that morning,lol!

Here is a pic of all my goodies that I picked up on our trip! I got my BG Lemonade and June Bug papers and other BG goodies from a great store in Orlando called Scrappy Boutique that I found by searching my GPS, I got my Memento inks at a Disney outlet store that had some scrapbooking supplies...look at the price tag...that's right 5$...what a steal! Then I had my hubby stop at Jo-Ann's on our way home from the Buffalo Airport. I got the DCWV paper pad, the Fiskars Apron lace punch, embossing folder and yummy American Crafts ribbon.
Now for some Disney pics...here is Hannah on her 10th B-day in front of Cinderella's Castle, Magic Kingdom. She was so proud to wear her Birthday Button and to have cast members wish her a Happy B-day all day long!!!!!! What a magical day!!!!!!

Oh this is me with Snow White my fave princess, Magic Kingdom!

and me smooching with my new boyfriend Mickey,lol, at Camp Minnie-Mickey, Animal Kingdom !!!!!

Here is all of us with Goofy in Frontierland, Magic Kingdom, just before we got on Splash Mountain!!!!!
and here is Chris and Kieran with Princess Jasmine and Aladdin at Morocco Pavilion, Epcot.
Lastly, I just wanted to mention that I was so super thrilled to have won the Just Magnolia card of the month! Bev e-mailed me to let me know and It was such a fabulous surprise!!!! Now, I have a 25 dollar Voucher from Simon Says Stamp to go shopping with. I know exactly what I going to get....yup, more cute Magnolia stamps,lol!!!!
Well, Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my pics! I hope to do some stamping this weekend but I need to clean my house too so I will try to get a little of both done,lol!
Hugs,

Such a lovely card for your little girl, I so envy your vacation to Disney world - I'd love to go there - Almost 15 years ago I was in Florida (Ft. Lauderdale) for a year and me and some friends went to Orlando on a trip, but we just visited the Universal Studios (the people I traveled with had been to Disney world earlyer :(...
Maybe one day I get to go back there, but I guess we have to wait until our kids are a bit older :)
Have a wonderful weekend!!
Hugs, Bente
